Now that the Uormima have t
last reached China, the empress
will find that they take a long time
in getting away. That is one of
the characteristics Vhat have made
the Geruiatj aruie dreaded.
Senator llanna has discovered
that, although there are no trusts,
yet they reduce prices all along the
line. The senator has an agile
The Republicans must bo hard
up for issues when they try to make
one out of the fact that Chairman
Jones owns an interest in the
manufacture of machinery for mak
ing the round cotton bale. This is
no more a trust than the ownership
of any patent machine is a trust.
Bourke Cochran, who triveled in
a private car and required as many
attentions as a prima donna at re
publican expense four years ago,
and who travels in a private car
and requires as many attentions as
a prima donna at Democratic ex

in the campaign on account of his

There are few orators on either side

We should like to inquire how
the Hon. Sam Jones can expect to
carrv Ohio for Brvan, when he
couldn't carry it for himself.
The Honorable Jim Corbett e'e-
clares that his character ia so well

who shall be nameless, call for no
explanation. He is quite right.

The following local appeared in
the Albany Democrat Tuesday and
is the kind of an item ttiat knocks
all the consistency out of the Demo
crats editorials: "Idle men are
scarce and many of the farmers find
it difficult to gt men to help put
in their fall crop." This was not
the cry four short years ago.

Says the Orange Judd Farmer:
"Good prices for hops again 1 A
short crop at fair values is more
satisfactory to all concerned than
an over-production at ruinous
prices. Orange Judd Farmer's com

a little money again."

Everything points to higher win
ter prices for dairy prodacts. East
ery farmers are contracting their
milk for shipment to market at an
advance of to yic per quart over
last winter's prices. No less ad
vance should be accepted by farm
ers who ship milk to Chicago, St.
Louis, Omaha, Denvty, San Frau
cisco or other western cities.

Some politicians don't seem able
to know when they have reached
the enemy's country.

The attack on Roosevelt in Colo
rado was entirely indefensible. So
was that on Bryan at" Yale some
years ago and so was the throwing

about the same time.
Several hesitators have climbed

President Harrison, ex-Secretary
Carlisle, and Andrew Carnegie are
the most conspicuous. Cleveland
and Reed w till doubtful.
Washington, D. C, Oct. 1.
It Is now up to Germany to make
another play in the Chinese gnme.
Having only got the positive sup
port of Austria and Italy in its first
play, which consequently counted
for nothing, Germany will probably
be certain of stronger support from
the powers before making another.
There have Iwen no new develop,
ments in Washington during the
past week, unless the talk of the
Chinese minister to the U. S. may
bo considered such. He wishes the
U. S. to assqine the role of media
tor between the jmwers and China,
and he is doing considerable talk
in r. atmut it. He is smart, too. He
is putting forth the argument of
dollars and cents in favor of the
idea. He says it is the only sure
way to prevent the dismemberment
of the Chinese Empire, and that if
dismemberment takes nlace the
open door to American trade will
bo speedily closed forever What
ever else they may be there it no
doubt that the Chinese are 'capable
Although it is little more than a
month to election day, the politi
eians have not succeeded in work
ing up anything like the usual ex
citement at this stage of the cam
puign. They claim everything, but-
are really up in the air, so to speak
themselves as to what the result
will ho, so far as heing able to pro
duce any tangible foundation for
their claims, and they fear that 1
the people are too busy to do the
ordinary campaign shouting, they
may also bo too busy to vote

sifted without prejudice, it seems
almost certain that control of the
house will go with the presidency
if Mr. McKinley is re-elected, his
party will elect a majority of the
house, if Mr. Bryan is elected, his
parly will have the house. The
uncertainty about the presidency is
largely owing to the belief that the
vote is going to be much snialle
than it was in 1800, when the whole
country was wirked up to fever
Ex-Congressman Dungan of Ohio,
is one the expansionists who be
lieves like Senator Beveridge, that
America is destined to rule a big
portion of the world. He said, in
a speech in Washington: "George
Washington was the first American
expansionist, when he took by force
land that France had a title to. In
my opinion title is fixed only by
the survival of the fittest, and that
is why America is going to rule the
earth. There is just one American
people, whoBe h"arts beat for their
flag and their country, and they
will stand by the man who is fittest
to lead them."
Secretary Long, who has author
ity to contract for the armor ro
quired for war ships now in the
course of construction, at what he
considers a reasonable price, lie
lieves that ho can reach an agree
merit with the three companies
which submitted the bids that were
rejected because the price wa too
high. Ho has talked the matter
over with representatives of the bid
dersthe Carnegie, Bethlehem and
Midvale Steel companies and wil
hold further conferences with them
He doesn't wish to exercise the au
thority conferred updn him by con,
gross to establish a government
armor-making plant, unless com
pelled to do so.

postmasters with a sharp stick. In
a general order sent to every post
master in the U. 8., the following
lanuuaL'e is used: "The number of
postmasters who failed to send pro
per reports with Blubs of manifold
receipts for the quarter ending June
30, lust, is astonishing, when it is
considered that postmasters are
recommended for appointment be
cause of their exceptional 'fitness,
ability, intelligence, diligence, and
punctuality.'" the order warns
the delinquents that there is trouble
ahead of them if they, don't do
. Senator Morgan, of Alabama,
whose conservative opinions have a
high value, is in Washington. He
said of the coal strike: "I don't be
lieve that the mining troubles in
Pennsylvania and other sections
will cut much figure in the election
As for the charge that the Demo
cratic committee was influential in
bringing out the order for the gen
eral strike, I don't believe it. Either
party would fight shy of getting
mix'jd up in such a matter. It will
bo over and cut no figure in Novem
ber, I believe from the outlook."
The figures showing the business
done by the post office department
in money orders during the last
fi?cal year are eye openers. . The
money orders issued amounted to
$255,670,027.98, and the money or
ders paid to $249,120,285.82, a total
of $504,790,313.81', being an incroase
over- the previous year of $02,306,-
849.58, or more than 14 . per cent.
This broke all records of the postal
service both in the amount ol in
creaso and in the percentage of in
crease and tells its own story of tire
proppcrity of our people.
I'AltlS EXPOSITION LETTER.
Prom our Regular Oiirrtotuli'n.
Parii, Franco, Sept. 17.
The question of roost political In
terest at the moment here is which
of two feelings, not to say two in
terests, will influence the French
government in its far eastern policy
tho alliance with Russia, or the
oft-repeated promise of Franco to
act in concert with the collective
powers. With the mass of the peo
tile the first feeling is by far the
stronger and in the end will pro'
bahlv prevail because, while the
ministry strongly desires to keeji
its plighted word, at any rate to
the world's ear, its fear of falling is
stronger still and oportuuism will
therefore rule its councils. Fremiti
ministers are of far too fragile
kind to risk knocking against the
iroii'pot of (wpular sentiment when
floating down the stream of polities,
aud particularly when, as in this
case, the ministers, as men, heartily
sympaltmo with popular predilic
tion. Whether the alliance with
Kussh can be called an interest ns
regards China is highly doubtful.
Controversy is always rife, even in
France, as to whtH her tho alliance
is of material benefit to that court
try or not; whereas it is pretty cer
tain that France is likely to get far
more of tho Chinese pickings from
tho powers collectively than from
Russia standing alone or in opposi
tion. Many iwuplo hold thut the
French aro simply "spoiling" for
war, and that once tho exposition
closes she wilt invite or make one.
Certainly, if she now throws in her
lot with Russia, there will be no
small chance that the longing will
lie gratified since exceedingly deli
cate complications are bound to
I was on tho way to the Chinese
and Japanese sections of the ex
position the other day when I was
diverted from my purpose by the
attractions of the Catholic mission
building. It is certainly one of the
most interesting and horrifying in
the .show. As you push back the
heavy curtains at the entrance you
find yourself in a dimly lighted
hall with wax work scenes on either
hand and visitors gliding fearfully
about. One of the scenes all of
them by the way are marvelously
lifelike snows an old missionary,
gaunt aud pale, but with the fire of
religious enthusiasm in his eyes,
seated on a chair, with a bible on
his lap, at the "very mouth of
loaded cannon to which an Arab is
about to spply the fuse. This is a
Jean do Vacber who in 1638 was
blown from the cannon's mouth in
Algeria for refusing to forswear
Christianity and adopt the creed of
Mahomet. Another group even
more horrible, is that of which the
chief figure is Monsignor Borio, who
in 1830 was decapitated at Tonkin,
but not till the sword of tho execu
tipnor had fallen seyon times. The
bishop is kneeling, after tho first or
second blow, with his head thrust
through a balk of timber which he
had carried with him from the day
of his captivity. A third grouj
represents a sister of charity dress
ing tho sores of a leper at Manda-
lay in Upper Burma, and is, from
the loathsomeness and terrible na
ture of the disease, tho most horrify
ing of all. One other group must
be mentioned since it relieves the
horror of the rest that of a mis
sionary, a great, strong, bearded
man, completely clothed in skins,
arriving at tho hut of a christian
ized Eskimo. The snow is all about,
the sledge and dogs are in the back
ground, and the splendid figure of
the missionary, as ho greets tho
convert in his simple Icelandic hat,
wonderfully impresses you.
Upstairs in the same building
are collections of charts, and wear
ing apparel, and miscellaneous ar
ticles of all sorts from nearly every
clime and region where the evange
list has penetrated. There is tho
figure of a Chinese priest, a convert,
and at his feet a placard showing
the Btato of the missionary enter
prise at the beginning and at the
end of the 19th century. Briefly,
at the beginning of the century
there were in the whole of China
but 5 mission (-tations and 200,000
Catholic converts; at its' closo there
were 40 stations and 1,000,000 con
verts.. Yet what a drop in the ocean
of Chinese millions. One of the
statistical charts is of interest 'to
Americans as showing broadly the
state of Catholicism in the United
States. . .
There are 3,000 mayors in France
and all havo been invited by the
'aris municipality to the fetes it is
giving on the 2 2d and 23d of the
month in celebration of the exposi
tion. , One would hardly have
thought that any of the mayors
would refuse to attend so purely
festal and non-political gathering,
but refuse several of them do, and
some in no very courteous terms.
flie reason is that tho last Paris
ii. u ..icipal elections resulted in a

their art will' at a future day bring the
cost of lliiiniination. down to a mere
trifle compared with what it now is. As
